I am back to ask you for advise. Post my last query ,I have amended my skin care routine as follows :
MOrning : Wash with Aha glow ,apply sebamed gel
Bath: wash with aha glow ,sebamed gel
Afternoon before stepping out to office: rinse with water apply talc…to prevent oiliness…as per your suggestions no make up no sunscreen
evening : before taking kids to play : wash with aha glow apply gel
night : wash with sebamed,cleanse with living cell toner and apply glyco 6
I am taking liv 52 to “detox” and baidyanath rakht capsules
My problems are these:
my skin turns oily and glossy after 1.5 hrs of a face wash, can I put on any thing to mattify my skin
My peskiest point of whiteheads in my nose and the area between my lower lip and chin…Any special tips on the same ?
I want to use a sunscreen, u advised me to stay off the lotus 3 in one matte…I have the lotus gel too ..when and how do I apply
I also have got the kaya nourishing night cream and kaya pigmentation reducer , how do I use it
I now have very tiny white heads which neither graduate into pimples( I am glad for that ) nor go away ..they just sit there on my face …How will they go…Will the glyco 6 make them fall off ?
Last but the least ..I want to thank you guys as I have not got any new eruptions on my face for the past 2 mths ( a new record so to say !) …..Now I just need to tackle the white heads and scars ….but how can I get really nourished looking skin after that ?
Love u guys for your help….I am calling you angels as you truly are that…u have fulfilled my wishes and made me smile for photos with my kids
hi jo..congrats,im very happy on ur progress 🙂
u are washing ur face too many times …u shouldnt wash more than 2-3 times in day..dont wash ur face with aha glow more than 2 times in a day as it can cause more dryness/peeling..washing ur face so times in a day can lead excess sebum production thereby making it more oily..
instead morning wash ur face with water and use aha glow when u take bath..then evening back from office u can wash with aha glow..night if required then use mild cleanser like sebamed..
no make up until week 3 in the starter regimen..but use sunscreen after week 1..and do add a oil free moisturizer..
talc is mildly comedogenic..
if u are looking for oil control then look into these options
i had whiteheads(not cystic) saslic made a lot of difference plus helped with oil control..
if u are using lip balm they usually acne near chin and lip area as lip balm are loaded with oils..and if u do threading that can also lead to acne in that area..
suncote is very good option for oil free sunscreen..
glyco 6 will help with acne by treating acne and scars..
since ur acne is under control,try cpp regimen for marks..
since u already have kaya night cream and kaya pigmenation its good..
atlernate glyco/keracynl/avene triacneal with kaya night cream at nights..and apply kaya pigmentation reducer twice a day..
honestly in my opinion clean up just made my acne worse..now with starter and cpp regimen skin is cleared..so thought i share this with u..
just follow a good regimen which includes a good facewash(preferably glycolic acid ones),oil free sunscreen,oil free moisturizer,topical application(exfoliant)..
hope this helps..
take care 🙂
